The 2015 Ford Tri-Motor Visit to KBTP:  Photo Gallery

A vintage 1928 Ford Tri-Motor Model 5-AT-B from the Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton OH visited Butler County Airport on July 9 through 12, 2015. Rides were offered to the public on this historic example of the airline industry with a total of 47 flights made over the duration of the event. The event started with a photo op featuring the Tri-Motor and a line up of vintage Fords from a local Butler County Ford Car Club.   See also a video of the aircraft here.
